The porterhouse with the crusted Parmesan was outstanding. My husband and I went for his birthday and received an amazing complimentary baked Alaskan dessert. We highly recommend HW to celebrate a special occasion.
Great dining experience from start to finish! Excellent food and service. Went as a family for my husband’s birthday.
Excellent food & nice ambiance
Although I made the reservation several days in advance, we were seated in the bar area which was noisier and less comfortable.
My colleagues and I have been frequent HW goers for the past year or so due to their UofI BOGO brunch deal. It has always been a draw despite disappointing service as 90% of the time someone’s order is mixed up or put in wrong. The past 2 brunches, my order was put in wrong and I had to wait for my food. Although the manager did bring out my correct order eventually, it was only handed to me with a half-hearted apology and never any sort of compensation. Without the BOGO, it hardly seems worth the price and we will likely be taking out weekly brunches somewhere else.
I was in Urbana Champaign visiting my sister and decided to take her out for her birthday. I'd seen really good things about Hamilton Walker and it sounded like a good place for a special occasion. The restaurant has a nice décor and the noise level was reasonable and the upfront staff were very nice when we arrived. We ordered steaks (mine rare, and hers medium). My steak was probably closer to Medium Rare, but not a big deal. My sister's steak was not done properly and appeared close to what I had received. The waitress took it back to the kitchen and it came back and was still was too rare. After a third time, it arrived, but was probably closer to well done than medium. She decided to just eat the steak. I've been to a ton of nice steak places over the years and felt like they should have a better handle on how to properly prepare a steak and also the same steak was returned, whereas Morton's and other high end steak places typically bring a new steak. When you're spending a lot of money, they should take care of you right. Our server Denise seemed nice, but as the evening went on, it felt like we were getting rushed to leave. For example, picking up our bread before we were done with it. Note the restaurant was supposed to be open until 10 pm and it was about 9:15 pm when this was happening. The restaurant did provide my sister with a free baked Alaska for her birthday, which was a nice touch however. What really irked me was that Denise brought the small electronic payment device over for us to check out and took a moment and set it up to default to a 33% tip. I've gone to lots of nice restaurants and the typical way these devices are used is to let the patron pick what tip level to give. I've used enough of these devices to be able switch them to the 20% setting (which I felt was generous given the mis-cooked steak and the "rush treatment" we were getting to leave. I think the restaurant is good overall, but Denise needs better training.
Excellent food! Excellent service! Love this place!
Got my order wrong, which seems like a far-to-common occurrence for their brunch hours. Thank goodness for the BOGO UofI deal or else we might need to find somewhere else to frequent.
Food was excellent! We always enjoy eating here every time we come to Champaign.
Server was awesome. Food exceptional.
Upon arriving for our first dining experience at Hamilton Walker’s we came upon a Great atmosphere! Super friendly staff in every corner of the restaurant. I say that as we parked in the back lot and came through the back door, not sure if we were to do that. Someone very happily guided us to the front. This was a Saturday evening, we arrived at 5:30... good thing! Because within the hour, the place was packed! Will definitely be back!
My wife and I went for brunch to try out the food but mostly because they have the cheapest bottomless mimosa special in town. The food was great and the mimosa was even better. Waiter did a great job recommending dishes and only coming to the table when. Ended and not constantly bothering us. We were there on a Saturday a morning from 11am till around 1230pm and the noise level was great. Would go back again.
Very nice experience...the staff was friendly and the service was top notch. The meals were prepared perfect and it tasted wonderfully.
We had a lovely evening. From the friendly staffer who greeted us, to Nick, who answered our every menu question - we were so pleased. The food was delicious. Unusual, in our experience dining at venues famous for steak, their vegetable side dishes were imaginative and superb.
Always a great meal with great service !
Best restaurant in town
Very noisy and the seating is tight. Atmosphere wasn’t nice but the food was good
Best restaurant in town!
This was such a classy place! I will definitely enjoy another special occasion here.
They had prepared a booth per my special request. Surprise attention to detail.
Food, drinks, service is always incredible even on the busiest of nights like Valentines day. My filet was only slightly on the overcooked side at medium but it did not affect my dining experience at all. I can not recommend Hamilton Walkers enough.
Great experience, I have never been disappointed with the food or service, at Hamilton Walkers!
Outstanding in every way!
We really enjoyed this place! Our wait staff was top notch. We loved the 5 star feel and the food. The best part for us was that the noise level was perfect. It did get louder just before we left, as the dinner rush picked up and they turned the music up (which I was not a fan of how loud it got). We will definitely be back and recommended to anyone celebrating a special moment.
We celebrated my birthday dinner and I left full and extremely happy. The food was delicious. Not to mention the wine :)
We had a wonderful dining experience!
The staff was so friendly and accommodating. I really appreciated that they took the time to read the comments that I added on the reservation. Our meals were all excellent. The cocktails and wine list were delicious and interesting too. The atmosphere is classy and lively, yet comfortable. We all loved it!
Great food and service. Portions are generous. This was our second year celebrating our wedding anniversary here. We’ll definitely be back!
It's not the restaurant's fault, but a guest with noticeable body odor came in and was seated almost two tables away. It was distracting for sure.
Just ate @ H-W for Restaurant Week! What a bargain!!! $19 for either beef tips (DELISH!) or salmon (also DELISH!) plus garlic green beans and mashed taters! All plentiful portions and plenty tasty! As an extra, I added shredded Brussel sprouts; hate to be redundant, but also delicious although slightly oily. The chocolate torte - part of the deal - was chocolate-y and on a generous puddle of hot fudge sauce. One-half of EVERYTHING came home in a box to enjoy tomorrow - which should give you an idea of the richness and portion size. Trust me: I am NOT over selling the Restaurant Week deal from H-W 2020!!
Great bargain for restaurant week. Entrees were fabulous. Chocolate cake tasted stale (it was dry).
This is my new favorite brunch in DTC. The Bloody Mary Walker was very good. I loved the smoked salmon Benedict and my friend enjoyed her Denver's omelet.
Enjoyed great dining during Visit Champaign County restaurant week.
We liked the ambiance, nice bartenders when we sat at the bar... and excellent cocktails. We were disappointed with the expensive 14 Oz Ribeyes we both ordered. My husbands was large but cut thinly... maybe 1/2 inch. Mine was about 1 inch think and looked more like what we expected..... however they were both tough to chew!!
With a price around $35 each, was definitely not worthy!
Wonderful dinner. My husband and I were looking to dine someplace we’d never been. Food was incredible and the service impeccable! We’ve already sent friends over.
The service was awful, we never received bread, drinks were not refilled and when I left for the restroom my water disappeared. Even the tables next to us said the service was not good. The server also informed us while we were leaving that there was an argument in the kitchen that is why the police came during our meal.
Was there on NYE and there was a special menu that we were able to order off of in addition to regular menu. We ordered the appetizer from the special menu-crab dip. Not good at all. Very fishy tasting and only had three small pieces of garlic toast/bread which was not enough for the size of appetizer. Ordered a ceaser salad and was not fond of the dressing. Possibly vinegar and oil based dressing. The main meal itself was very good. Both of us had the salmon which was excellent. Dessert was excellent as well- ordered the Carmel cheesecake from the special menu.
Overall it was decent. Busy night and service was good. Not in any hurry to go back anytime soon.
Steak was good, the sides were bland and not really appetizing. Our server, paid way more attention to all the other tables around and beside ours. Even when he came to the table next to us he never checked on us. Price was high for the quality of food, especially when we could have when to a less expensive place for better quality and tasting food. This would never be my first choice to go to.
Ate here on NYE, great service even though the we’re extremely busy. My sister ant husband shared the steak for two whir he included appetizer, main course and desert, they said it was outstanding. I had the steak medallions w/ twice- backed potato and salad. My wife and I split the bread pudding desert. Everything was great. Noise level from music speakers were a little loud at first, my wife asked the server if they would turn it down, they did with no questions asked. This has quickly become our go to place for celebrations or just stop by for a sandwich and drinks. Thank you H-W!
